The word “unique” tends to get quite a workout from the automotive media, but one vehicle it truly applies to is the 2014 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet. The convertible version of Nissan’s top-selling crossover is now entering its fourth model year—which is probably about four model years longer than most folks thought it would last—and the brand has made a number of small changes, along with one large one, to help goose sales for what is likely to be the CrossCabriolet’s swan song.
After all, the next-gen Murano was previewed by the Nissan Resonance Concept at this year’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit, with the automaker essentially confirming that the new Murano would be a fixed-roof model only.
On the other hand, as mentioned, there has been some fine-tuning for the vehicle’s final selling season: Midnight Garnet and Gun Metallic have been added to its list of available exterior colors, while its 20-inch titanium-finished aluminum-alloy wheels showcase a new split five-spoke design. But the most significant change to the 2014 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet will be to its bottom line, since Nissan has sliced $2,545 from its MSRP, bringing the price of admission down to $41,995.
